As Roma have announced the new big signings Chelsea midfielder Mohamed Salah and Manchester city striker Edin Dzeko.

Before the pair were on loan at Serie A giants but Roma have revealed that these deals will definitely become permanent via their financial statements.

Dzeko and Salah joined Roma on season-long loans from Premier League duo Manchester City and Chelsea.

Dzeko has cost Roma £8m which is a huge cut on the £27m Manchester City paid for his services in January of 2011.

The former Manchester City striker was poised to bring his time at the Etihad Stadium to close with a switch to Italian giants Roma on August 12, 2015.

The Bosnia-Herzegovina centre-forward’s performance was decent at his former club Manchester City with 189 appearances and 72 goals along with 39 assists.

Meanwhile, with Italian side Roma, his performance with 7 games under his belt and one goal and an assist.

On the other hand, The Egyptian winger, Salah’s buyout clause was £16million. Providing Chelsea with an impressive £5m profit on the player they bought from Basel 21 months ago.

It appears that Salah who has made 8 appearances for Roma so far this season with three goals and an assist.

Salah was widely disappointing at Stamford Bridge and infuriated manager Jose Mourinho enough to force the 23-year-old to train away from the first-team this summer. He departed with just 19 appearances, scoring two goals and 4 assists.

Salah’s permanent departure from Chelsea may not be the end of the trouble the Blues face from the flop winger, though, with FIFA having already confirmed they will investigate Fiorentina’s move into the players move to Rome.

Roma is publicly traded company and, therefore, have to reveal such information when it arises.

Both Dzeko and Salah had clauses in their loan deals which would allow them to move to Italy beyond the end of their loan spells.

Roma said: “These players were first signed on a temporary basis, which has been transformed into definitive transfers after planned contractual conditions were met.”

La Viola believes their loanee from last season had effectively agreed to rejoin them this season before re-engaging on that decision to move to the Italian capital in what they claim is a breach of contract.

FIFA said in a statement last month: ‘We can confirm having received a claim from the Italian club, ACF Fiorentina, against the English club, Chelsea FC, and the player, Mohamed Salah Ghaly, for breach of contract. “The matter is still pending and being investigated.
